    台湾のお茶専門カフェカンバイ

    台湾で絶対に楽しみたいのが「台湾茶」。どのガイドブックを見ても伝統的ながらオシャレな茶館が紹介されています。もちろん、1度は素敵な茶館に足を運び、正しい手順で淹れられた(台湾式の茶道)本格的なお茶を飲むべきです。しっとりとした空間で、極上のお茶を楽しめるのは台湾旅行の大きな魅力。 でも、街中にあるカフェやドリンクスタンドのお茶も楽しんで欲しい。台湾人も本当に趣味でお茶が好きな人以外は、普段街中にある普通のチェーン店でお茶を楽しんでいます。私たち日本人がドトールコーヒーによく立ち寄ってコーヒーを楽しむのと同じですね。 そこで今回はお茶の種類が豊富で、涼しい店内で座って(←ここ意外に重要です)ゆっくり台湾茶を楽しめるお茶専門のカフェ『COMEBUY Cafe(カンバイ カフェ)』を紹介します。 Share

  • Happy New Year from TAIWAN

    2 0 1 7 !

    ※日本語は英語の下にあります It is the second time that I have greeted the new year in Taiwan. However in Taiwan January 1st is not as important as Chinese new year. When I lived in Japan, after X’mas we immediately have to change the decorations from X’mas to new year’s one.  However we can see X’mas decorations at every corner in Taiwan still now in 2017. There’s no special preparation for new year here. I enjoyed 101 tower fire works. It was awesome, whenever I watch it, I always think how they do that! Yeah! Happy New Year! A great cheer went up from the crowd when the fireworks started. There’s no fireworks ceremony in […]

  • Soaking up the sun

    ※日本語は英語の下にあります Actually I like to stay home. Even though I don’t have any plans, I just like to take it slow at home. Sometime reading, Game, Eating, Drinking a coffee, or just staying on my bed! Because I have a lot of things in weekdays(hove to do and just want to do), So I need the time I don’t need to do something. 15 Reasons why the sun is good for you and its importance However I’m gradually starting to understand that we should go out and soak up the sun. First sunshine give us a bunch of energy. After we have a job, we have to have concerns, for example, jobs, loves, family, […]

  • A pretty sunny day in late autumn

    【STYLE】 A pretty sunny day in late autumn 2016.12.26 ※日本語は英語の下あります It was a warm week in end of December this year. Like you wouldn’t believe! It has been warm weather around 25℃ over this week. However usually Taipei has rainy days in winter. I was at a loss last year. So sunny days are precious to me. I wore sleeveless tops, and a black pair of skinny pants with a red check shirt. These days I like to wear monochrome clothes, however wearing only monochrome clothes, it’s too dark feeling in such a pretty sunny day! That why I tie a red shirts around my waist for accent color. And picking a […]

  • Kyoto ZEN sprit in winter

    ※日本語は英語の下あります Actually Kyoto is very cold in winter. Because Kyoto is located in a basin, people living there feel chilled to the bone in winter. My friend who is from Canada said Kyoto is colder than Montreal.  However I think it’s not as bad as people think. There is fewer tourist in the winter. These few years, every corner is full of tourists in Kyoto. Don’t you think traditional architectures don’t match a crowd of people talking? I love Kyoto’s landscape, especially Ohara. Ohara is located to the north of Kyoto City. We take a bus from Kyoto station to get to Ohara. Ohara has Japanese traditional timber houses and pure […]

  • Sunrise purification

    ※日本語は英語の下あります In Japan, it’s said that the sun has the power to purify everything. That’s why Japanese people like to dry many things under sun. For example clothes, covers, toys, food and even our bodies. On the other hand, we believe the sun is very holy. My grandmother often puts her hands together and prays to the sun for a sunny day. I went to Ali mountain to see sunrise last month. It was amazing! I’d never been to hight place like Ali mountain before it is over 2000m tall! I did have a headache, because of the thin air, however it made me feel like I’m living in nature. On the first day, after […]
